We shout about poverty

use it to define those
‘who do not have’

Before they heard our shouts

did they know
of money
wealth
extravagance

poverty?

or did they care more
for family
earth
harvest
shelter?

How is it
that a people
who put family and the earth
above all else

are seen as more ‘impoverished’

than a people
who put wealth and material possessions
above all else?

Which is the country
who is truly impoverished?
